Many authors are realizing the benefits of our new digital publishing world: you can keep your books SHORT.
Big publishing is cottoning on to the trend too.
Here’s a new imprint, from Harlequin, “Cosmo Hot Reads”, Harlequin.com | Cosmo Red Hot Reads from Harlequin: “Stories Can/Will:
Include multiple points of view
Be told in first person
Be contemporary (but not paranormal please!)
Urban international settings are good
Heroes can be bad boys, successful entrepreneurs, geeky scientistsâ€”different flavors of men for different fantasies”
This shows you novellas are HOT. If you’re working on a novella, and you think it might fit, you can submit your synopsis.
Of course, if you get rejected, you can publish it yourselfâ€¦ “rejection” isn’t a death knell these days.
